I bought a full service kit from the 501autocare guys off here, ordered the kit late evening and was with me on the Tuesday, full kit with Mobil 1 and OEM filters etc was £72 + Delivery (I think)

Pick up the VW special designed for your car at your local VW shop.

The cost to fill your tank of fuel is less than the service for oil that lasts 10 000 miles

get the vw quantum stuff
10w40 is "supposed" to better for higher mileage older cars according to my local garage not quite sure why when VW specs are 5w40..

hehe yea my car has had a few treats since i got it few months back, its addictive


my service light came on about 1000 miles ago, will be doing my first DIY service shortly also, good luck with urs! only thing im worried about is the oil filter change, but hopefully will figure it out as i go.

Then just need 2 find some1 2 code my new anni clocks in (4 cheap!) and will be booking in 4 remap in april
think will leave it at that, already spent more than i planned to


would defo recommend the k03s turbo, having had an AGU b4, this one feels bit nippier standard

i also need to look at the turbo before i buy the ko3s as it boosts really well pulls well and it braided oil lines and that lol so best just to check it is the ko3 first hehe well ye i was planning on a remap next month but looks like im gonna have to put that into may now. as in april il be doing the service n exhaust and maybe front mount least then the engine will be healthy and ready for remap cant wait to be fair :) im happy i got a golf gti t rather than a subaru impreza subaru is just basic inside boring lol.
